Check out the evidence
Police have released all of the evidence in the sexual assault case against Nelly. The Auburn PD in Washington released surveillance footage of Nelly and his accuser going to his bus, their statements about the night in question, and photos of the evidence.
Nelly has denied any wrongdoing and the case was dropped. However, the main thing that drove the decision to drop the case was Nelly’s accuser’s refusal to testify.
“Within days of her initial report to police, the complainant, through her attorney, informed investigators from the Auburn police department that she did not wish to assist in prosecution or the investigation of Mr. Haynes,” the prosecutor’s office revealed in a statement to the New York Daily News.
“While we have reviewed the existing investigative material, without the assistance of the complainant, this office is unable to proceed or fully assess the merits of the case,” they added.
The lawyer of Nelly’s accuser said that she decided to not testify because she did not believe she would receive a fair trial.
“[She] wishes she had not called 911 because she believes the system is going to fail her,” attorney Karen Koehler said.
From the Docs
The documents showed a different side to the story, in the absense of her testimony. In the statements that Monique Greene gave to police, she painted a grim picture of what happened to her.
Greene told police Nelly forcefully removed her pants and threw her onto the bed, and said, “You’re gonna take this d**k.” She says he repeatedly told her during the intercourse, “That’s my p***y.” She says the forcible s*x lasted for 30 minutes, and she believed he had ejaculated inside her, and also on her backside and front.
Greene added that Nelly offered her $2500 to stay with them through the next tour stop and she declined. Nelly, for his part, has denied the allegations from the beginning.
“Let me say that I am beyond shocked that I have been targeted with this false allegation.I am completely innocent. I am confident that once the facts are looked at , it will be very clear that I am the victim of a false allegation,” he wrote on Twitter. He continued:
“I do want to apologize to my loved ones for the embarrassment and for putting myself in a situation where I could be victimized by this false and defaming allegation. I also want to thank my fans for their unwavering support. They know me. I assure you I will be vindicated. And I assure you, I will pursue every legal option to address this defaming claim. Thank you.”
See the Video
Check out the video up top. You can see Nelly and Greene entering the tour bus and then Greene leaving while she calls the police. The video shows that she called the police immediately and definitely lends credence to her story, but ultimately no charges will be sought. Greene decided that she wouldn’t be able to get a fair hearing, so there will be no hearing.
What do you think? Did Nelly do what he’s accused of doing? Does this evidence sway you either way? Should the police have released these photos and videos for everyone to see? Sound off in the comments and be sure to SHARE this article.
